6th September Indians historic day

Last week India’s supreme court cleared that section 377 is not a crime even they will become more equal. According to Indian penal code that sex between consenting adults of the same gender is no longer an offence under section 377.

What is section 377?

Indian penal code describes that ‘unnatural offence’ and says that whoever voluntarily has carnal intercourse against the order of nature, shall be punished with imprisonment with life, or with imprisonment of either description of a term which may extend to 10 years and shall also be liable pay for a fine.

In Bhubaneswar, Aditya das travelled six hours on a bus to attend the first gay pride parade on Saturday. Das looked around and holding with rainbow flags which is the sign of celebration of gay identity. At that time Das said that “ I felt l had reached heaven “.

September 6 will go down in history – a day when India becomes more equal. A day when 18 % of the world’s LGBT population lived freely in their country and they are “not an aberration but a variation “the words of Justice Indu Malhotra.

That change in law does not necessarily equate to changes of heart. While this is a momentous shift for the world’s second largest most populous country but it doesn’t mean that people lives will be altered overnight and we still have important work to do.

This is the time when a software engineer Arnab Nandy finally got the opportunity to realize his dream of transmitting his identity. There so many people’s who do not open their identity because they fear about society and so many things but this is a time that we are treated as equals. We congratulate those who sacrificed so much, for so long, to get to this moment.
